Cancel CNN’s Twitter account — that’s 140 characters or less. They just don’t know when to stop.
The network’s SOTU coverage included John King reading such insightful Tweets as “Go Obama, let’s do it!” and “This is painful to watch.” Indeed, CNN’s incessant pandering to technology is painful to endure. No one cares what Duane from Omaha thinks.
Unfortunately we should expect more mindlessness, as King and that infernal touch-screen board get their own weeknight show. CNN has already given Rick Sanchez, the journalistic equivalent of a Tweet, a second hour in the afternoons.
That time would be better spent reading Larry King’s Twitter feed: “What is it with people who don’t use turn signals?!?”
The Cuban Ted Baxter had quite a year. Admit it. You miss him.
